Depends upon your version of Windows. If you have business, enterprise or ultimate you have remote desktop and that can do what you want. That is one of the reasons that I don't license Home Premium...because it lacks that feature.

If you don't have those, you can look into something like TightVNC.

Well then you have what you need. Right click on My Computer on your machine, hit the remote tab and enable remote desktop.

From the XP machine, under Accessories and Communications you should find Remote Desktop connection. Run that, put in your computer name or IP address and you should be able to connect. If not, ensure that the Windows firewall is allowing access.
